2022-23 Liverpool Salaries & Contracts Breakdown

Last Updated: July 1, 2023
Who’s the highest-paid player at Anfield this season? Check out the details behind all the Liverpool contracts and wages currently on the books.

Liverpool FC has a time-honored tradition of disbursing hefty salaries to its players. Even before John Henry and Fenway Sports Group (FSG) purchased the club in 2010, LFC (and its-record-breaking transfer business) had a historic reputation for delivering trophies that long ago cemented the club’s legacy.

Since then, the Reds’ increasing investment in world-class players has propelled them to the highest rung of the European soccer pecking order. The club has spent over $1 billion on player transfers overall, creating a winning culture under manager Jurgen Klopp; key signings like Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, and Mohamed Salah have helped deliver Premier League, UEFA Champions League, and FIFA Club World Cup titles to Anfield, solidifying the Red Army’s place among Europe’s elite clubs.

NBA superstar LeBron James notably joined the Merseysiders family as a minority owner in 2011, too, and the club’s partnership with James and Nike has resulted in some of street culture’s most sought-after sports merchandise collaborations — nice work if you can get it, and another feather in the cap for the Reds’ bran — and notably, FSG is exploring bringing additional investors into the club to increase its financial flexibility further. It has made clear, however, that it will not sell a controlling stake in the club.

With that in mind, let’s check out how Liverpool player salaries are divvied up this season in the Premier League.
